Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Melanie Matheus

My name is Melanie Matheus, and I am from Germantown, Wisconsin! I graduated from the University of Wisconsin La-Crosse in 2019 with a degree in Early Childhood-Middle Childhood Education. I have spent the last 3 years teaching 5th grade. Now that I have moved to the Raleigh area, this will be my first year in 3rd grade, but 4th year teaching overall. 

As a teacher, I hope to create a safe, engaging, and rigorous learning environment for students to learn and reach their highest potential. Building relationships with students and families is one of my favorite parts about teaching. I am so excited to be living in a new area, and teaching at Bryan Road. Cannot wait for a fun and successful year!

When I am not teaching, I love to be outdoors whether that is hiking, biking, or on the lake. I also love to read mysteries and thrillers, watch Disney movies, and play board games. A few of my favorite treats are ice cream, any kind of chocolate, and jolly ranchers. A fun fact about me is that I love to do gymnastics/dance and watch the Green Bay Packers. When I moved, I left behind my family cat, Katniss, and I am going to miss her kitty snuggles so much!
